RTJ say: “Here is a song we wrote months ago. We weren’t planning it on releasing it yet but… well it feels right, now. It’s about fear and it’s about love and it’s about wanting more for all of us.”

Boots ain’t emerging anymore, but he’s dope: video for C.U.R.E., live at Rough Trade tonight (11.13)

Source: Deli Magazine NY

We’ve been following producer Jordy Asher of Boots since the days he was playing in duo Blonds, but would have never imagined he would go on to become Beyoncé’s main producer and – most importantly – lead the trip hop revival, something we had been waiting for quite some time. Ok, he may not be exactly an emerging artist anymore (although as an artist he’s far from established), but this kind of creative output is very relevant, and adds another element to what looks like a growing NYC psychedelic wave – after a few years dominated by the folk ...

Boots, ex Blonds, on tour with FKA Twigs + live at Baby’s All Right on 10.28

Source: Deli Magazine NY

We booked NYC duo Blonds two years ago for our CMJ 2012 Rootsy Stage – we remember the band complained that they weren’t really a rootsy band. Well, maybe they weren’t, but we must have detected some of those soul influences that are now pouring out of the band’s male half Jordy Asher’s new solo project BOOTS. (For the record, soul music belong to the roots music umbrella). The young musician and producer suddenly rose to relevance (rather than fame) when in  2013 he signed to Jay-Z’s entertainment company and Sony Music Entertainment imprint, Roc Nation, and produced the big ...

BOOTS – Dreams (Ft. Beyoncé)

Dark, synthy, secretive NYC producer BOOTS just yesterday released the opening track to his forthcoming mixtape, and with “Dreams” he’s now released its closing. This track is a smoother, soulful turn from his previous work, but BOOTS wears sweetness well. He relayed in a status update that every cent of this song’s proceeds will go to Day One, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting teenage girls from dating violence.

The track also features the relatively unknown artist “Beyoncé.” BOOTS contributed to the production of her latest album, otherwise little is known of her. Only time will tell.
